Center of Attention

Even the top of a root system can become a beautiful centerpiece. After many hours of cleaning and sanding the arms of the driftwood Dave produced this Center of Attention with a handmade glass bowl on it. Sitting solidly on a piece of slate, this is going to grace someones table exquisitely. We took it to Art in the Park here in Powell River(www.discoverpowellriver.com) , a day for artists to show off their wares and it sold as soon as it was set on the table.

Dave spent the rest of the day working on the Mammoth Table and plans on having it done in time for the Xmas craft fairs. Thomas Eakins says of artists "The Big artist keeps an eye on nature and steals her tools." We certainly are doing that as we enhance what would have been left on the beaches to rot or be used for fire wood.

...the saga of Dave and his driftwood to be continued.......
